PKBR Staff Writer Published 05 December 2017

T&K Toka, a printing ink manufacturer, has agreed to acquire Royal Dutch Printing Factories Van Son, a Dutch family-owned manufacturer of high-quality sheet fed offset inks.

Under the terms of the deal, T&K Toka will purchase all intellectual property, technical expertise, product portfolio and manufacturing equipment of the Van Son and its fully owned subsidiary, Van Son Holland Ink Corporation of America.

The acquisition is part of T&K Toka’s plan to strengthen its production, distribution and service in Europe and the US. Financial terms of the deal were undisclosed.

T&K TOKA sales department managing director Ryuichi Kurimoto said: “Van Son is one of the leading ink manufacturers in Europe. The company is known for its high-quality inks with excellent consistency.

“Especially its conventional 4-colour sheet fed ink program is a welcome addition to our portfolio.

“Further will the acquisition raise our profile as a full scale ink solution provider to the printing markets in especially Europe and the US. Additionally it will enable further improvement of our service levels and substantially re-enforces our distribution presence in many parts of the world.”

T&K Toka expects the acquisition would enable its customers to benefit from a more comprehensive product portfolio and a wider technological expertise.

Van Son managing director Wim van Mastrigt said: “Not only are our products complementary. T&K TOKA is indeed the ideal owner of our organization.”

T&K Toka said that the acquisition establishes a major expansion in Europe, the Middle East & Africa and the Americas especially in the US.
